Juventus boss unfazed by allegations


TURIN, Italy — Juventus coach Antonio Conte is unfazed by allegations from one of his former players that he knew about a match that was fixed while he managed Siena last season.

Local media reported Saturday that the recently arrested player, Filippo Carobbio, told investigators that Conte was aware of a fix for the 2-2 draw between Novara and Siena in Serie B last May.

Even before being asked about the allegation, Conte opened his weekly pre-match news conference by addressing the matter.

"There's little to say. I'm serene and confident in the (investigators), who are doing their job," Conte said. "I haven't been summoned by anyone. Once I've been summoned by someone, I'll have the pleasure of responding."

Carobbio, who began this season with third-division Spezia, is one of the more than 30 people who have been arrested in Italy since last June in a massive probe into match-fixing. Others arrested include former Atalanta captain Cristiano Doni and former Lazio captain Giuseppe Signori.
